Exceptions are unexpected, or are thrown to halt an operation in its tracks.

Logging is capturing application messages and exceptions which can be used to track down bugs or help optimise a process.

Jumping in at the code deep-end now, I am going to talk about a simple service interface which helps me greatly in keeping my services small and with a single purpose.

Architecture

One of the most important software architectural designs I have learned over the years is SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture).

Uploading files from a web browser has always been a thing. New web standards are in place, but the reality is that even IE9 doesn't play ball, leaving a web developer with little choice but to fall back

I have been working in the mobile sector for a number of years now, both back-end services and the front-end UI. Architecture and design of these elements have their own challenges

I recently found myself needing to merge two objects into one.

Turns out to be pretty simple, using JSON.NET and a recursive extension.
